July 7, 2004 -- I made it part way across the state of New Mexico near Moriarty, where I've stopped to take my ten hour break. I've still got about 852 miles to go to make it to San Diego, California.

I'm adding a Beard Progress page where I've posted pictures of the progression of the growth of my beard. I'll continue to add monthly updates do document it's appearance as it gets longer. My intent is to let it continue to grow to see just how long it is capable of getting.
